PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.54 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

When installing a PeopleTools patch on a non-Windows environment, the patch installer will scan all the PS_HOME files and will convert to UTF-8 all the text files (HTML, dms , cobol, SQR) that contain special characters.
